COAT OF SMILES, parody art of iconic symbols. A duck's hat, a mouse's ears and a smiling yellow button. Three iconic things brought together in one artwork.

Purple Pete

A new plague for Duckberg. Purple Pete, supervillain.
Here are some 'Purple Pete' drawing process bits. BTW, I was asked about Pete's backstory. Actually, he runs an ice-cream truck fleet which is a disguise for his gadgets-on-wheels service, serving fellow villians.

Vorbote

Back cover of the book 'Cause Life Is Serious Enough!' and a sort of forerunner or herald/harbinger of things to come ;-)

Yellow cartoon hand glove hat

The trick is to prepare a cartoon duck for its job at the earliest opportunity. It is impossible to start enthusing young ducks too early.

1. Look what I got in the mail the other day.
2. And this is how I feel, today.

Algorithms are merciless

Or, when the parody "outdoes" the original. The other day, Mesolithic Mouse took over Mickey Mouse's hashtag. At least on Instagram, for about 24 hours. I noticed that only because the stats went through the roof.
